Investigating Spatial Audio Coding Cues for Meeting Audio Segmentation

As multiparty meetings involve participants that are generally stationary when actively speaking, participant location information can be used to segment the recorded meeting audio into speaker ‘turns.’ In this paper, speaker location information derived from ‘spatial cues’ generated by spatial audio coding techniques is investigated. The validity of using spatial cues for meeting audio segmentation is explored through investigating multiple microphone meeting audio recording techniques and extracting and comparing spatial cues used by different spatial audio coders. Experimental results show the statistical relationship between speaker location and interchannel level and phase-based spatial cues strongly depends on the microphone pattern. Results also indicate that interchannel correlation-based spatial cues represent location information that is ambiguous for meeting audio segmentation.
